Went and got 6 of these little guys after putting them in the aquarium I noticed they have no color just dots is there anything wrong or is it probably just stress? I paid a good amount for 6 of these guys as they are fairly rare where I live. Kinda stressing me out lol

Fish have a slight ability to change color when stressed. What's most likely is that they've paled out due to being stressed, and should be back to normal coloration after a few days, but no less than a week after addition.

They're stressed. Usually they'll color up in a few days to a week after they get used to the tank and start eating.

Thanks for the great replies got a little worried for them. They seem to be doing good they've only been in the new aquarium for an hour or so
I plan on getting some of these for my next aquarium this summer.

They've been doing amazing! Color has come back a little but still very little red. The spots on the fish are definitely brighter today.
